Over teh bar at Xmas ??

Post  softbaiter on Wed Dec 23 2009, 07:06

Hey guys

Looking for someone to join me on a manukau bar crossing over Xmas/new year period. once out through the bar its 3 mins to 40 meters which seems to produce constant 10lb+ fish
this will be a bit of an extreme trip and probably not suited for a newb as you are basically in the tasman sea, no islands to hide behind once your out there

I will lodge a TR with the coastguard and also doing a bar crossing log as S&R sent about 10 mins after they dont hear from you after logging a bar crossing.

Going over the bar today, you only get a handful of days like this a year, small tides, no wind, im going to cross at about 12pm in the old mans boat. tide will be slack and low.

Tomorrow also looks like a good opportunity, the bar should be non existent through the south channel

HI, i am keen on an "outer harbour" experince. have been out there a couple of times in boats, but not on a ski. i have VHF and PLB which can add to the pool of saftey gear. launching of the beach at Cornwallis is easy. i live in Pt Chev so is the closest launch spot. Can meet you on the water near Destrcution Gully or similar if you launch elsewhere.
let me know dates as they come up.

Cheers,

Peter

Hi Guys, the old boy was having a bit of a whinge about the chop so we didn't go over the bar, sat just inside and caught a few good snaps inside the bar at 40 meters 12 in total, nothing over 4lb, Also got what I thought was going to be a 20lber, and after a 21 min fight I landed a huge eel. Fresh mullet was the only thing getting eaten though

Am looking at the weather for the next few days for a crossing.
